Paris knife attacks continue, 7 injured includes 2 British tourists
September 10, 2018 | Brainwave Science
A man wielding a knife and an iron bar attacked seven people including two British tourists in central Paris. Police arrested the suspect, whom they believed to be an Afghan national aged 31, after a group of people threw pétanque metal balls and overpowered him.
Authorities believes at this stage of an investigation, there are no signs of a terrorist nature in the knife assault. The suspect was unknown to the police and was not on France’s Fiche-S list of potential terrorism suspects. According to an official police report, four victims are in a critical condition.
The knife-man initially stabbed two men and a woman near the MK2 cinema. Eyewitness Youssef Najah, 28, told the French media he was walking along the canal when he was the suspect running and holding a large knife. According to his testimony, there were 20 people chasing him. They threw pétanque balls at the suspect before he dived into an alleyway and injured two British tourists. The mayor of Paris thanked the officers of the police anti-crime squad (BAC) who arrested the man. She also thanked the people who tried to stop the attacker.
France has been on high alert following a string of attacks in recent years, often by people who have become radicalized or claim to have acted in the name of the infamous IS group. More than 240 people have lost their lives since Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine attack. In recent month, there have been several knife attacks in France and in most of the cases, terrorism has been ruled out irrespective of ISIS claimed the responsibility of the attack. On 23 August, another knife attack happened where a man stabbed his mother and sisters to death and seriously injured a neighbor before police shot and killed him. Ten days earlier an Afghan asylum-seeker was arrested after a drunken rampage with a knife in which four people were wounded.
Repeated knife attacks and lack of significant evidence highlight flaws that exist in France’s ability to provide security and protection to its citizens. It has been only three weeks since last knife attack occurred, and another attack is in news. It is imminent that another significant attack would occur because of freed ISIS sympathizers, supporters or soldiers.
Although Paris has seen no large-scale terrorist assaults since November 2015, there have been regular, smaller attacks by lone assailants, some of them inspired by terrorist groups like the Islamic State. It is only imperative that the anti-crime squad and French police embrace a foolproof and upgraded technology to discover reliable and scientific intelligence to find the link between these attacks. The only available technology in the security that offers support to beat domestic and international terrorist attacks has already been developed by Brainwave Science and it’s called iCognative.
iCognative is the only forensic technology that addresses the fundamental problem faced by all law enforcement agencies around the world, how to distinguish a common citizen from a potential terrorist even when both look identical. This technology provides a scientific solution to this fundamental problem and distinguishes the potential suspects before they strike. The significant difference between the perpetrator and an innocent person is that the perpetrator, having committed the crime or planning to do so, has specific knowledge of the crime stored in his brain. An innocent suspect does not. Similarly, a terrorist mastermind, terrorist soldiers or sympathizer has specific terrorism-related knowledge stored in his brain. This is what iCognative testing detects, scientifically and accurately.
iCognative test when utilized by anti-crime squad swiftly delivers valuable and accurate intelligence to find missing links and other vital information related to this case. The whole foolproof test per suspect is completed in less than an hour to find the remaining terrorism sympathizers, link between previous knife attacks, their handlers, strong evidence revealing terrorist organization behind these attacks. The iCognative system record and analyzes the brainwave responses via upgraded proprietary headset when confidential stimuli are flashed on the digital screen. The test determines with over 99% accuracy if the information under question is present in the suspect’s brain or not.
The only possible solution and remedy for French law enforcement to protect their citizens is to embrace modern, faultless, highly scientific and tested iCognative offered only by Brainwave Science. It is the moral responsibility of law enforcement personnel to take advantage of this guaranteed solution to protect its citizens from such threats.
